This is a unique bakelite Art Deco belt and buckle. The belt is fit for a lithe woman with a tiny waist. The belt features semi sweet chocolate brown bakelite curved rectangles linked together with gold tone metal ending in two squares of bakelite for the buckle. The bakelite has been confirmed with a simichrome test. Made for a very small waist typical of the fashion in the 1930s when a belt was worn with an afternoon dress. Although the belt is made for yesterday’s woman, if you are creative, the belt could be lengthened by opening a link and adding elastic or chain to make the belt your size. Perhaps you have the waist size needed to wear this belt already! In addition, if it is the bakelite pieces that you desire, they could be used to make several stretch bracelets because there are two holes on each piece perfect for making stretch bracelets. There are 19 of these pieces along with the buckle.
Belt measures 25.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. Buckle measures 3 by 1.5 inches.
Made for a woman with the waist of a sparrow or for collectors of bakelite fashion accessories.
